Students obtain practical skills with design of photonics devices and their applications in photonics systems. Students acquaint with BMP, FULL WAVE and TCAD programs. These software allowed design optics structures and devices using for controlling and distribution optical signals. Software TCAD is used for design of injection optical sources. Optoelectronic integrated circuits will be design by WINMIDE and ORCAD programes.

Course outlines:

1. Software used for design of photonic circuits
2. Software TCAD used for design structures of lasers and detectors
3. Designed photonics waveguide structures using numerical analysis
4. Program BMP used for designed structure with planar optical waveguides
5. Design of electrooptical effect modulators
6. Design of optical waveguides and interference coupler
7. Properties of FULL WAVE program for time analysis photonics structures
8. Software WINMIDE and ORCAD used for design of optoelectronic systems
9. .Design of optoelectronic receivers
10. Design of optoelectronic transmitters
11. .Planar and fiber optical amplifiers
12. Planar and fiber structures with Bragg gratings and their applications
13. The planar and fiber optical sensors
14. The optical communication systems-attenuation, dispersion and noise

Exercises outline:
